may  overcome  it ;  I  am  determined  to  try  and  my 
intention  is  to  return  to  my  native  State  to  practice 
law  if  I  can  qualify  myself,  and  while  doing  so  to 
become  U.S.  Senator  from  my  native  State,  and  to 
work  for  this  until  I  am  sixty  years  of  age.  I  will 
pray  to  God  to  give  me  the  resolution  to  persevere
